I have an older cousin who has a particularly unusual collection: every 78 rpm recording every made by the 1940s/'50s novelty band Spike Jones & His City Slickers.
That runs to dozens of the old-style discs with the group's goofy sound-effects-laden songs that were all the rage in films, personal appearances and even early television shows back then.
One in particular was just made for a one-reel film. It's the 1945 classic "Cocktails For 2," and here it is. (That's Spike himself as the bartender.)
